A couple of months ago, I posted a handful of links to help students make one popular research project (Disney) that often ends up being too shallow (“I love Disney! There are X number of resorts around the world. Everything’s kawaii!“) into something deeper and more worthy of discussion.
“Two Nine-Year-Olds’ Magnificent Open Letter to Disney About Racial and Gender Stereotypes“ (from Brain Pickings)
If two nine-year-olds can think deeply about social issues and come up with some “intelligent and culturally sensitive alternatives,” then you university students can too.
Do you see anything in your community you’d like to change? Who would you write a letter to, in order to suggest ways to make those changes?
